LA Times:Death toll from slides rises to 15 with daybreak air rescues set to begin in Montecito

About 300 people remained stuck in their homes in Montecito’s Romero Canyon neighborhood and authorities planned to launch helicopter rescues at daybreak Wednesday morning.

The mudslides began around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, when intense rains dislodged boulders and caused heavy mudflow along hillsides that were scarred by the sprawling Thomas fire late last year. A number of homes were ripped from their foundations, with some pulled more than a half-mile by water and mud before they broke apart.

Chicago Tribune:City to take up $9.3 million settlement for wrongful conviction tied to Burge detectives

The City Council’s Committee on Finance on Friday will take up a proposed $9.3 million settlement to a federal lawsuit alleging that detectives working under disgraced former Chicago police Cmdr. Jon Burge beat a man into confessing to a fire that killed a mother and her five children.

The City Council would then vote on the settlement next week.

It wasn’t until 2012 that Cook County state’s attorney’s office dismissed the charges against Kluppelberg, saying prosecutors no longer could meet their burden of proof.

Kluppelberg, who left prison with $14.17 in the pocket of his gray sweatpants, had spent nearly a quarter century in prison.

The lawsuit filed by James Kluppelberg alleged that he was beaten so badly that he urinated blood.

Atlas Obscura:A Vast, 430-Year-Old World Map, Full of Places and Creatures, Real and Imagined

Born near Milan in 1544, Urbano Monte lived a life of leisure and luxury. For him, such freedom meant scholarship, and the accumulation of a library renowned in the region. In his early 40s, his interests turned to geography, and a mammoth 20-year effort to synthesize and consolidate everything known of the world’s geography into a few volumes. More than that, he wanted to make a planisphere map of the world “to show the entire earth as close as possible to a three-dimensional sphere using a two-dimensional surface,” writes map collector and scholar David Rumsey

Williamette Week:RUBBISH!

Portland’s top brass said it was OK to swipe your garbage–so we grabbed theirs.

Fun story about the goose and gander story but played out by citizens and their local government.

Chicago Tribune:Navy servicewoman allegedly killed by ex-boyfriend in Lake Forest had made video about domestic violence

A woman who was gunned down last week in a murder-suicide in Lake Forest had made a video two years ago to raise awareness of abusive relationships. In the video, Claire VanLandingham, a 27-year-old Navy officer and dentist, spoke of how common domestic abuse had become
